BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Johnny O'Bryant scored 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as LSU defeated Vanderbilt 81-58 in a Southeastern Conference game Saturday night.
O'Bryant had struggled in the past four games - three of which were Tigers losses. O'Bryant averaged ten points and six rebounds in those four games. In LSU's overtime defeat at Ole Miss last Wednesday, O'Bryant had only six points and five rebounds.
Going against a Commodores team with just seven scholarship players available, O'Bryant was 5-of-10 from the field and 11-of-14 at the foul line. The 22 points were his most since the season-opener at Massachusetts when he scored 25 points. The 12 rebounds were O'Bryant's second most of the season.
Jordan Mickey had 13 points for the Tigers (11-5, 2-2). Jarell Martin and Andre Stringer scored 11 and 10 points, respectively. Rod Odom led Vanderbilt (9-7, 1-3) with 20 points.
